Stepford wives sex

Activate your online access. June 17, As numerous reviewers of the overblown and over-remade remake of The Stepford Wives have pointed out, men do not really want to be married to robots. In particular, it is probably safe to say, they do not want to be married to robots who wear pastel flowered dresses and floppy garden-party hats and who wax ecstatic over cupcakes and Christmas crafts—even if they fetch drinks like Rover and don see-through lingerie for a lunchtime quickie.

A lot of cultural change has gone over the dam since In the remake, Joanna Nicole Kidman is the brilliant, tightly wound head of a TV network who specializes in battle-of-the-sexes reality shows I Can Do Better in which the women always win.

Basically, Rudnick wants to have his cupcakes and eat them too: Thus, men are sexist weaklings and housewives are servile bimbos and ambitious women are obnoxious but will either mellow through love or turn the tables on men because They Can Do Better—take your pick. The movie is such a confused satire of its original premises—this time, the ultimate villain is an ultratraditional woman —that the characters seem to utter all their lines as if they are speaking in scare quotes.
